Streamline flow in veins
This film looks at the medical physics of streamlined and turbulent blood flow in a glass model, and with the help of dye injected into the tributary veins shows streamlined blood flow in the rabbit vena cava and portal venous system. Also discusses in some depth Reynolds' formula for the conditions determining the switch from one type of flow to another. 2 segments.
